the nation's finances has proved more difficult. republicans criticize obama for the mounting national debt, and they say the unemployment rate, 7.8%, is unacceptably high. >> the latest poll suggests the candidates are running close, but they were taken before the storm hit shore. earlier gene otani spoke about obama's successes and his failures. >> the president is not the first president obviously to promise change, but he certainly made that word stick. how do voters think he's done? >> obama did change a number of things and not the least of which is of course health care reform. presidents on both sides of the aisle tried before him and failed. and he ended the war in iraq and he passed the stimulus among a number of other financial initiatives. somexper say hwas peap too ambitious. >> coming in he said the administration was to really change the course of foreign policy and economic policy that the bush administration had been following. and he was elected on that mandate. but it was again difficult for him to achieve that change. apparently because the problem is so huge that they c
votes in this state. the current unemployment rate, 5.9%. 2008, president obama won the state by over six percentage points, the first time a democrat won the state of virginia since 1964. joining us from the university of virginia is the director of their politics center. larry, what are the issues being campaigned on in virginia? guest: the same issues as. every as the economy is for most, i suppose. if there's any special flavor into virginia, we cover all 50 states at the center for politics at the university of virginia, if there's any special flavor here, virginia depends on defense to a greater degree in than any other state except for alaska. we are second in per-capita defense expenditures. there's a special flavor on federal spending, because governmental employment is so important, not just in northern virginia, which borders on d.c., but also in hampton roads, the hampton roads area off virginia beach and the surrounding localities. host: what are the demographics of the state of virginia? guest: as with most larger population states, there are many states in one. you have
the unemployment rate up 8%. that is one obama doesn't want is an eight next to the unemployment number. melissa: there were 759,000 people magically found a job but didn't show up on payrolls. i wasn't sure how that happened. i want to get to your point. >> nobody knows. melissa: because it is so fantastic. it talks all about fairness, which i love because that is such a loaded phrase in america right now. i'm glad you honed in on that because one of the reasons it really bothers me is, who decides what is fair? it is such a subject testify word. i don't really want politicians in washington deciding what's fair. i don't necessarily think, they're not my moral gauge. >> not your moral compass. well, they shouldn't be. the reason i wrote the book because we knew that months and months before the election the fundamental theme of obama was going to be class division and class warfare and this whole fairness theme. the point of the book, i don't want to ruin the conclusion, the ending but really is free enterprise system as you know, melissa, it is one that creates the system, that creates the mos
's obama's narrative we're in recovery. if unemployment rate goes up it will feed governor romney's narrative. given a close race where anything can change the dynamics of a few or minds of a few undecided voters this is pretty big report. melissa: i guess. paul, do you think there are really undecided voters out there at this point? i have such a hard time with that. i feel like when somebody says they're undecided they don't want to tell you who they are going to vote for. >> probably because you want to reach out and shake them. i think there are undecided voters out there. in fairness to them it is incumbent on both candidates to lay out details and keep pressing arguments. there are folks given number of different circumstances or because they are not certain what the next four years might bring may make the call at the end. i tell you what. i agree with chris, the report is fundamentally important. it is even more important when you look at key demographics for the president's base like young americans who last month the unemployment number was 11.8%. not 7.8. for them and t
still in ohio. but we know what's going on, right? no doubt about it. president obama is winning ohio. largely because he saved the auto industry and so many -- tens of thousands of jobs in ohio depend on the auto industry. so many families from the auxiliary businesses. in fact, the unemployment rate in ohio is lower than it is nationwide because the auto industry is back. thanks to president obama. g.m. is back making better cars than ever before. chrysler reported an 80% increase in their number in the third quarter of this year. it's all due to the auto bailout. it is working and mitt romney, we remember, opposed it. he wrote that famous op-ed for "the new york times". headline... let detroit fail. where he said don't do anything to help them out. let them go belly up. so, of course, romney campaign realizes panic panic panic panic, oh, my god we're losing ohio which we need. no republican president in over 100 -- no republican has ever been elected president in over 100 years without carrying ohio. so th
, obama has made a huge mistake over the last 3 years. lou: and friday, our last reading on unemployment. i don't know -- i don't know if anyone pays attention to these numbers. >> i do. lou: there is some credibility gap i believe. but give us your thoughts. >> you know, numbers have been horrible for the last 36 months, there has been no real recovery in the u.s. we barely kept up with population growth. if the participation rate had not fallen as sharply as we had, unemployment would still be in 12% range. a lot of people out there working, are working but part time instead of full time look they would like. it cannot continue this way very long. this is a tragic is, if you worry abouteople in the storm you do, you have to worry about theme without jobs for last 4 or 5 years, who lost ability to ever get back in the labor force, it is a tragic loss of a press our natural -- precious natural resource, i am at odds with what should be don lou: we're all sfrufl frustratey that. very few people talk about this that is. we have seen whites staying the same in unemployment. but the blacks
with the unemployment numbers coming out. >>> doug luzader live in washington. thank you. >>> another sign the obama administration knew the security situation in benghazi was deteriorating. a classified cable less than a month before the attack warned that our consulate could not with stand a coordinated attack. peter doocy is live with more on the story for us. >>> good morning patti ann. the state department received a secret cable from the security team in benghazi on august 16th. that's 3 and a half weeks before the september 11th terrorist attack on the consulate that killed four americans. the secret cable said that the security situation on the ground in benghazi was trending negatively that there were al qaeda training camps in benghazi and they would not be able to defend themselves against terrorists in the event of an attack. we got our hands on a quote from that secret cable that was based on an emergency meeting in libya a day before. it says quote rso regional security officer expressed concerns with the ability to defend both in the event of a coordinated attack due to limited man po

be a wave elections but obama is preaching patience of the economy. the electorate is not patient. >> the romney was campaign was based on the idea you couldn't get re-elected with unemployment above 7.2%. now, there is no way it going below that on friday. obama appears to be on the verge. >> is ohio below 7.2%. so if ohio is the deciding factor unless they have a good ground game, he has the number in ohio. >> you are right. ohio is better than the national race. >> it's not really a national race. i understand what you are saying. we have two different elections taking place here. there will be a national vote and essentially be 8 to 10 states that will do their own thing. for the country's sake i hope whoever wins the electoral college wins the popular vote. >> greta: ohio, we're going to blame ohio if we're happy or unhappy. coming up, from the campaign trail to the trick-or-treat trail, wait until you see what paul ryan was up to tonight. that is next. that could be a question of blood flow. cialis for daily use helps you be ready anytime the moment's right. you can be more

will give him that chance. will have 40 straight months of unemployment above 8%. there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month. >> paul ryan has also made frequent visits to virginia. >> do we want to stay on the path that president obama has placed a son? i take it as a no. >> ryan brought the message back to jobs. >> he said this would create jobs and prevent unemployment from getting about 8%. >> another circuit has been his wife ann. he hasshe insists women also need to focus on the economy. >> as we now this economy has had women harder than men. it has been much tougher on them. >> virginia has been the selected site for other major romney messages. he chose emi for his foreign policy address. >> i know the president hope for a safer and prosperous middle east. i share this hope but hope is not a strategy. >> as he did in the debates romney asserts -- inserts the economy into every visit. talking to us after the american legion visit. >> we did not cut our military budget. it will kill 137 jobs in virginia. unacceptable. >> after trailing obama, polls in virginia show
to the unemployment report, what can we glean from this? >> thomas, this is probably the most important unemployment report in years. many people anticipating the november 2nd report assumed that the race would be a little bit, well, either obama or romney would be farther ahead. but this report comes four days before election day. the entire campaign, really both campaigns, are premised on the notion of either the economy is growing or it's not growing. either jobs are coming back or it's not coming back. the assumption among most economists who are looking at this is that the establishment survey, the survey of the employers, will show about 125,000 new jobs created in october. and th and that the unemployment rate will stay close to what it was, about 7. %. the real issue is the direction of the unemployment report. if it looks like things continue to get a little bit better, that improves obama's chances. that improves the president's chances. if it looks like things are getting worse, however, that really does lend some credence to former governor romney's view that things are not what they sho
will see high levels of unemployment continue and stalled wage growth, if any at all. >> reporter: and mr. romney mocked mr. obama for this proposal he outlined earlier. >> i said i want to consolidate the government agencies, we should have one secretary of business, instead of nine different departments. >> we don't need the secretary of business to understand business. we need a president who understands business. and i do. >> reporter: this afternoon in richmond, mr. romney called on supporters to give to the red cross but was interrupted by protesters. >> that is what caused this monster storm. >> reporter: at the center of the response to the storm, new york city's mayor michael bloomberg said that climate change contributed to the storm, and endorsed mr. obama as the best candidate to tackle the climate change, saying he could still inspire the hope he did four years ago, despite what mr. bloomberg called a disappointing term. >> and when the government was out, at last monthly unemployment report, before the election. >> peter alexander, in virginia, thank you. >>> let's get an up
. >> let's dig in on that. one thing, governor walker. wisconsin unemployment rate is 7.3%. you've done such a good job, you're way below the national rate. in states that have lower unemployment than the national amp, does that help president obama? >> no, because voters are smart. i don't buy that others in the media have that cynicism that somehow voters conditions make that connection. you look at ohio, virginia, what we've done in wisconsin, it didn't turn around until the last two years, less than two years. and it turned around because republican governors came into those states, got the economy improving again. think about how much better it could be if we put a republican governor, a former republican governor, in charge as our president. that's the clear difference. at the convention when i spoke, i mentioned that night at my speech that if you compare all the states in america with the ones led by republicans compared to those led by democrats, the unemployment rate in republican led students was one point lower than those led by democrats. and voters understand that.was than
